2012 Panini Contenders Football Blaster Box Break

And here is the 2012 Panini Contenders Football blaster box that I found on discount.  I saved it for last.

Trumaine Johnson

Base Rookie Autograph

I was hoping to pull something crazy but it looks like a base autograph of Trumaine Johnson will have to do. 

Robert Griffin III

Rookie of the Week Insert

And I also got one of those Pepsi Rookie of the Week insert cards too.  These are pretty cool cards.

Overall these discounted blasters that I found were a bit of a disappointment.  I wish I could say I got some super short print card worth $100 from a $12 blaster but not this year.  I'll keep my eye out for more discounted blasters as I do think Targets get a few shipments of them throughout the spring.

2012 Topps Magic Blaster Box Break

Busted open that 2012 Topps Magic Football blaster that I got on discount.  Unfortunately for me, the blaster was pretty crappy.

Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson
2012 Topps Magic Football
Base Rookie; Mini Rookie

The best rookie cards were a Robert Griffin III, and a mini rookie card of Russell Wilson.

Brock Oswiler & Stephen Hill
2012 Topps Magic Football
Rookie Enchantment Inserts

The only good inserts were two Rookie Enchantments, one of Brock Osweiler and the other of Stephen Hill.

Even though this blaster was on discount for $11.99, I am still feeling like I got screwed.  Definitely one of the crappiest blasters I've opened in a while.

Pack Searching 2014 Topps Heritage Baseball

I've been super busy lately.  I haven't had much time to go out searching at all.  I did manage to find one chrome card in a hanger of some 2014 Topps Heritage Baseball though.

It was just a Paul Goldschmidt chrome refractor.  These chrome cards look awesome.

And I love the old school backs on these cards.  I'm definitely keeping this card in my collection.

2012 Topps Strata Football Blaster

Well, here are the results from the 2012 Topps Strata Football blaster that I got on discount. 

Russell Wilson & Robert Griffin III

Base Retail Rookie Cards

The results are pretty sad.  The best rookies were Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III.  Nothing else of worth to really note aside from a Chris Givens die-cut.

Can't win 'em all.
